Monday Montage- Shades of the Season

This month's colors are brown and wood.
A true prim lover has to has some sort of wood in their decor.
Mine is no exception.

Antique Printer Letterpress

Circa 1930's Man's Straw Hat complete with a Brown Silk Band.

Apple Butter Paddle

Wood Staley's Pure Food Starch
(this is used for pancake mix and popcorn)

Bail Handled Pantry Box
(great place to hide my chocolate)
psst..don't tell Bob. LOL

Late 1800's Brown/ Cream Checked Ladies Jacket
Early Iridescent Brown and Stoneware Pitcher

Early Flour Measure with Butter Paddle in Front

My Newest Wood Box
This is a real big one and has a hinged lid.
(not sure what I am going to put in this box yet)
Ding Ding
A Light Bulb just came on...
It may be big enough to put my Christmas china in...
Guess I will will have to see if it does.

That completes another Montage.

PS. Bob and I will be leaving Thursday
for our annual trip to Springfield, OH.
That means another Friday without fun facts.
I apologize ahead of time...sorry :-(

After spending time in Ohio,
we will be heading into Kentucky.
We will not be back home until Sunday or Monday....
Depends on if we fill up the van,
and how far our money goes. LOL

I don't have to be back to work until after Labor Day,
so once we get home,
we will re-stock the store
then spend time in our yard...
weeding and planting.
Let me retract that statement...I will be weeding and planting...not Bob.

Will try to take pics of our journey.

Spring Blessings to All
